Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cox "Im a vascular surgeon who sees a variety of patients including diabetics who are having circulation problems stroke survivors with blockages in their carotid arteries patients with aneurisms and dialysis patients. When working with patients I try to be as open and straightforward as possible. People who have a serious disease need to know whats going on in order to make appropriate decisions. There are many places where a patient receives quality care for everyday problems but if theres something unusual or if treatments have failed elsewhere I think Duke is a great place. The doctors here at Duke have a lot of experience with rare situations and advanced technologies available. Outside of work I like to spend time with my wife and two children play the banjo and work on antique cars."
